some yum

Did you lick beaters

When your mother made icing

For a birthday cake

Did you make shortbread

Baked with cinnamon sugar

Leftover pie dough

Put on an apron

Take a whiff of yesterday

Taste bud time machine

  5. Oh yes indeed. Those are fun, wonderful memories not just with my mother but also my mother’s mother. Oh how they both could cook/bake. Licking the bowl/spatula/beaters were delicious!
